Cruel Intentions pilots

NBC had announced a series based on the 1999 movie Cruel Intentions at their upfronts presentation in May. However, Cruel Intentions is not on their fall schedule. After the executive session for the Television Critics Association, NBC Entertainment President Jennifer Salke told reporters that the network is currently exploring options for streaming services.
